I want to do some work setting up a family tree, but the  best looking sites, like MyHeritage start at $15 a month and while I'm keen to do this, I don't feel I would get that sort of value from it.

Make sure you read the Ts&Cs on signup

Ie the 23&Me Ts&Cs are shocking, they own your DNA profile, and can do whatever you they like with it, including handing it off to law enforcement, Heath insurance companies, or even the pharmaceutical company that’s a significant owner of their stock.

Got it sorted, it was Dashlane, for some reason the software didn't like Dashlane completing the fields. Thanks

Thanks for that. I won't be doing DNA at this stage and will be careful when I do. Not that I have anything to hide, but I do like to own my information at that level even if I'm using it to find out about ancestry... It's like drug companies who want to own your genomes.

To build a tree on Ancestry is no monthly cost, I highly recommend them for the DNA testing as well

It's potentially even worse than just that.  If one of your siblings allows them access to their DNA, then they've got most of yours anyway - without you ever consenting to anything. "Family Tree Forensics" is a thing.

 

Maybe that seems great for fighting crime, but there's more money to be made I'm sure, by insurance companies.
